This week, we have a very simple message: be thankful for the loved ones in your life. While we are counting our blessings at this holiday season, remember that the greatest blessings in our life are the people we love. These are the people that influence our daily decisions, lift us up when we are down, support us in our dreams and stand by our sides in times of trial. Without our loved ones, our lives would be incomplete.
While you are surrounded by family and friends this Thanksgiving holiday, take time to reminisce about the past and cherish memories by sharing stories and celebrating your lives together. Make sure to let them know how important they are to you and that they are your greatest blessing!
Also, if you have an estate plan created, it is important to let your loved ones know about your plans and intentions. We recommend doing this when the family is together so that everyone can understand why you made the choices that you did, which will help them maintain peace and strong relationships even through the future hardship of a death in the family. Make sure to express to them that you created your estate plan for their benefit and because of your love for them.
Estate planning is truly about love. It is the only way to ensure your loved ones are cared for even after you’re gone. There is no greater gift. If you have not created an estate plan for your family, do not delay. If you do have a plan, make certain your beneficiaries know about your Trust and the steps they need to take when the time comes.
We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. May you be surrounded by those you love and reminded of the many blessings in your life.
Happy Thanksgiving from Morris Hall!
